Career Fair Prep Night

February 14 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Whether it’s your first time attending a career fair or you are a seasoned pro, we have a great line up of pre-fair resources to check out. We know that career fairs can be overwhelming to some so we’re here to help!

Here’s what you’ll get at Prep Night:

  • Drop-in employer consultations: individual resume review guidance/answering your career fair questions with helpful recruiters attending the in-person fairs
  • Walk up elevator pitches: Create, practice, and receive feedback on your personal introduction with company reps at their booth in our simulated elevator pitch practice room
  • Virtual career fair help desk: Stop in to meet with career services staff if you have questions on engaging with our virtual fairs
  • Informal alumni help area: drop-in to get advice and tips from alums that have been through the fair and job searching process!
  • Win free raffle/giveaway items from Kohls, Target, Illumina, American Family, and other participating companies, just for attending!
  • The first 50 students to attend will get a FREE padfolio to use for the fair and future interviews!

*Check back later as we continue to add additional stations and prep opportunities to get you ready!

Career Center staff and WASB members will be on-site to assist in your experience at this event.

All UW students welcome. No dress code required! Please bring your student ID (and resume if you want it reviewed).
